Hello Alice,

We might be related. I am from Berclair TX and now live in Dallas. Yes, the Carabajal family is HUGE

My Grandmother is Inez Trevino Carabajal
Children: Delia Trevino (my mother)
Gloria Trevino Rodriguez (Aunt from Berclair)
Esmerejildo Jr (from Berclair)

My grandmothers siblings (she had 6)
Prajedes Carabajal (15 children) from Berclair


Father:
Epitacio Carabajal who's brother is Anastacio Carabajal.
Epitacio's parents are Procobio Carabajal & Pridad Saenz

In reference to Anastacio, I recently obtained Catholic church records from Austin that show:

Anastacio & Canuta's children
Feliciana Carabajal
Lucinda
Anastacio Jr

**these are Catholic records from the Austin Diocese and might not have all info***

The records were very old so some of the info was difficult to read.

I have a lot more information, but would like to exchange or compare what we have.

***Please send me an email and lets communicate ***

I hope to hear from you.

Hello Rene,

I think we might be related as well (not hard to do with such a large family). My whole family is from Berclair/Beeville/Goliad area. I live overseas right now but have been trying to get our history for sometime from my relatives. My grandfather (Prajares Carabajal) had researched all the family history back to Spain. No one knows where this is? He died in 2000. He is as far back as I have gone. I have researched a little on the internet but can't verify it with anyone, so it is very difficult. My Grandmother, Francisca Ponces Carabajal is also deceased. Your information is very helpful. WE have a relative in Austin. Prajares’ (spelling from the obit) son, Fernando Carabajal and his wife Rita live in Austin.

I am curious as to how we have any history in Austin, Texas. Did it start there and move south? How far back are we Texans? Was Procobio Carabajal & Pridad Saenz born in Texas or did they come over from Spain?

Please let me know if you have any information on my questions.

Thank you for posting this information.

Mother: Celia Carabajal Garcia (one of the 18 ~ 3 died at birth/or shortly after)

Hello Katherina,

I believe I replied to another email earlier.

Yes, we are related. I have found documentation (not hearsay or stories) going back to 1800.

Ernest Carabajal, your uncle is the person that says he reserached back to Spain, but I have spoken to him and still I am unable to confirm if so. He said next time I plan to visit, to call him a wk before and he will take all info out of storage for us to review and discuss.

The Carabajal family appears to have migrated from Mexico to Goliad/Berclair based on records (death, birth, census, Catholic Diocese). I have many of these records having visited so many courthouses. It is a lot of work, but so rewarding and fun.

Please emaime using my persona email
